ok, so i know there's a high chance i get a lot of hate from this, but i'm going to post this any way.

I hate the double standard of 'you can't hit  a woman' first off let me say i would never hit a woman for no good reason, but i would never hit a man for no good reason either.  i believe in full and total equality of the sexes and after 7yrs of training in karate, i know a few things. 1. when it comes to physical altercations FEMALES ARE MEANER 2. they can hurt me just as easily as can any man.

i hate that a man who defends himself against a woman's physical assaults will probably go to jail because she called the cops on him, and a man who calls the cops on a woman attacking him will probably get laugh out of the station unless serious damage was done, in which case those around him will most likely ridicule him, so it's a lose lose situation, and if i'm going to lose, i'd rather at least lose and have my health.

any way i know men have one or two double standards that work in our favor, but that's just one of a few that women exploit CONSTANTLY.

again, let me say i'm not going to just haul off and hit ANY body just because i'm pissed off whether they be woman or man, and the only time i would is in a self defense situation, or a mutually consented round of sparring.

idk if you didn't read it, or if you're just being a smart ass.

in the former please read the post next time, in the case of the latter please don't clutter my threads with smart ass comments.
I would say rather that he's looking for some equality, men can fight each other, women can fight each other (so far even) women can hit men, men cannot hit women (now unbalanced).

'I'd rather at least lose and have my health', rather than being a justification is simply the desire to protect himself from women who are perfectly happy to attack you just because they don't like you (I experienced this a lot when I was about 12 and always retaliated).

The idea of being a woman beater, suggests being the aggressor IMO, but I would also suggest perhaps taking the 'hit' part literally. There are other less damaging ways to defend yourself. I agree that there is a double standard, but it is one that is difficult to avoid.

There is actually an issue about Female -> Male domestic violence, in that it largely goes unreported, and there is very little that can be done about it legally or fairly.
You're reading beat into it, there's no desire to beat women involved.
It doesn't take much (or anything for that matter) to provoke violence from anyone, the difference is that he's not allowed to defend himself against half the population.
Nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
You are awesome
No beating outside the dojo :) .

But seriously, not that it doesn't happen, but I just don't see how a woman can do any serious damage to an average man without using a weapon of some sort.

So, double standard or no double standard, you do not hit women. You let women hit you, as was the case with an older couple in a nearby village. When they had an argument she would pull up a chair, stand on it and give the hubby a good smacking. When asked by his friends why he put up with it, he would answer it was like a fly fluttering on his cheek. :)
in the dojo, a while ago, we were practicing 'get aways' as in a bigger person is trying to carry a child or some one smaller off,
a 12 yr old girl (at the time) scratched the guy so hard, each finger nail broke the skin causing him to bleed from four different points on his face, and left a his torso bruised. not serious damage as in life threatening, but we obviously know who won that encounter.

a girl 14, wanted to mess around with me and have some fun sparring before class. now i'm bigger stronger, and have more experience, but she bit my wrist and caught a nerve in my wrist which resulted in a loss of feeling in my entire hand for 2 days, and it took about 2 months to fully regain feeling in my thumb again. (and i applauded her for being so aggressive)
This sounds less like fair standards and more like some young ladies with anger and aggressiveness issues.
you fight how you train.

if you don't train using the 'dirty' tricks, then they won't be the first things you try. that is after all the point of training.


and now as the big person taking the other person away how am i doing my job as not only an instructor, but as a partner, how would i be doing my job if i just let them go because the squirmed and slightly discomforted me? i make them work for it and every time i fully expect a finger in the eye or a foot in the groin.
That sums it up for me too.
And this happened in a dojo? What style of karate do you practice? I mean, biting and scratching! And long fingernails are allowed? And how could she come so close to you as to be able to bite you???

You've proven me wrong! I take it all back! Women are lean mean fighting machines out there to get us weak men!

NOT!

Regardless of the argument at hand, I just love that image!

Militias, politics, anti-2nd amendment hysteria and the Bundy issue

Much of the hysteria, hatred and vituperation slung against Bundy and his supporters, in my opinion have little to do with the legal matters and much to do with the frightening image to some of armed citizens confronting legal enforcers of the law, regardless of the cause. The anti-2nd amendment crowd is in full cry over this, like hounds baying at a treed rapist of color in the old south. Bundy's supporters have been labeled by some anti-gun hysterics as mouth-breathing morons in 2nd-hand…See More
